Poonawatta's Native Birds

Poonawatta Bird List

Using the principal of the “canary in the coal mine” we actively monitor the bird species diversity on the Poonawatta property.

There are some species that we have not seen for years, and other long-gone species that have reappeared only after our extensive re-planting of native vegetation; some are very occasional sightings, and others we see flying overhead.

Seeing a Red-capped Robin in the 1880 vines is an absolute thrill and a direct result of the establishment of a native species shelter-belt alongside the vines.
